The secrets of Einstein's unknown equation – with Sean Carroll.

"The real Einstein's Equation is part of general relativity, which relates the curvature of spacetime to the mass and energy distributed within it.

Sean explains why the geometry of spacetime has anything to do with gravity, and how this famous equation expresses the way that spacetime curves." https://youtu.be/BRudidBcfXk @science @physics

A few of the highlights from SPUN's newsletter, which I get in my inbox a few times a year:

4 minute video (has captions) of the history of the relationship between plants and fungi, which I enjoyed. Then a brief pitch at the end for the Society for the Protection of Underground Networks.

4 minute video (has english captions on the video itself, spanish captions if you use the CC button)

"Don Talí lives in Araucanía Region, Chile, where many generations of his family have cared for the fungi that grow on their land.

Traditional fungal knowledge around the world is disappearing fast, and we need to foster it to protect the underground mycorrhizal networks.

We honor the wisdom of our Ancestors, incorporating their knowledge with our scientific discoveries for a brighter future.

Video by Matteo Barrenegoa produced in collaboration with Fungi Foundation."

A paper I haven't read because it isn't on SciHub:

"Abstract

Ethical practices in human microbiome research have failed to keep pace with scientific advances in the field. Researchers seeking to ‘preserve’ microbial species associated with Indigenous groups, but absent from industrialized populations, have largely failed to include Indigenous people in knowledge co-production or benefit, perpetuating a legacy of intellectual and material extraction. We propose a framework centred on relationality among Indigenous peoples, researchers and microbes, to guide ethical microbiome research. Our framework centres accountability to flatten historical power imbalances that favour researcher perspectives and interests to provide space for Indigenous worldviews in pursuit of Indigenous research sovereignty. Ethical inclusion of Indigenous communities in microbiome research can provide health benefits for all populations and reinforce mutually beneficial partnerships between researchers and the public."

"The industrialisation and commercialisation of food have transformed our diets, whereby most of our calories now come from an entirely novel set of substances. Ultra Processed Food (UPF) now makes up 60% of the average diet in the UK and USA. It is highly processed, highly addictive, and largely unhealthy." https://youtu.be/5QOTBreQaIk @science

"In this illustrated lecture, Andrew George, author of a prize-winning translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh, explores four themes related to this Babylonian masterpiece: the archaeology of the poem’s recovery, the reconstruction of its text, the story it tells, and its messages about life and death." https://youtu.be/Rd7MrGy_tEg @archaeodons

I hold Irish novelist, John Banville, in high regard & when I was a juror for the Neustadt Prize, I chose him to win (he came in 2nd).

I’ve also written this appreciation of his remarkable body of work:

Now, that I’m trying to archive that shaped me, in shorts on my channel, I did a about Banville & sent him link:

A good titty fuck

Sometimes what I really want is a good titty fuck, to make me cum hard, to feel my nipples ache, to feel a throbbing cock wrapped between my tits and hot cum spurting on my nipples.
